Needless Things Podcast 222 – Toys Я Us

I don't wanna grow up, I'm a Toys R Us kid
they got a million toys at Toys R us that I can play with
I don't wanna grow up, I'm a Toys R Us kid
they got the best for so much less, it'll really flip your lid
From bikes to trains to video games
it's the biggest toy store there is (gee whiz!)
I don't wanna grow up, cause maybe if I did
I couldn't be a Toys R Us kid
more games, more toys, oh boy!
I wanna be a Toys R Us kid

On this special episode of the Needless Things Podcast Dave talks to Head of Research Ryan and Belligerent Monkey Jay about Toys R Us. From their first visits to their final goodbyes and all of the years of hunting between, this retail chain felt like so much more than just a place to buy stuff. For toy collectors like these three, it was a haven.

Additionally, the Phantomaniacs and Needless Things Irregulars answered the call to share their own memories and sent in audio clips and short essays that will be shared on the show.

Listen in as Toys R Us kids from all over share their memories of the greatest toy store there was!
